Concussion Lawsuits Expected To Be Combined

The NFL is in the midst of a legal battle with former NFL players over concussions. The league is currently facing close to 100 separate lawsuits from former players, but according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the lawsuits will be consolidated on Thursday.

Lawyers for former NFL players plan to file a single lawsuit today consolidating scores of complaints brought against the league in the past year accusing the NFL of concealing information linking football-related head injuries to permanent neurological problems.

The lawsuits will be consolidated in the "master complaint" that prosecutors will file on Thursday in Philadelphia, Pa. although it was close to 100 separate lawsuits, the lawsuits combined involve more than 1,000 former NFL players, who all claim the league hid information about the dangers of concussions suffered while playing.
